A Detailed Look

Note the caution label over the power plug that informs new users of silent, Zero RPM Mode at low to medium power.

The Corsair SF600 Platinum power supply enclosure is painted matte black and measures a mere 100mm (3.9”) deep.  The back panel includes an On-Off switch, AC receptacle, and open honey-comb grill.

The power supply uses a Corsair NR092L fan that operates in silent Zero RPM mode up to ~40% load (25°C room temperature).   The NR092L intake fan was designed by Corsair to move more air through the power supply components with less noise. Fan blades are properly balanced to prevent resonance at higher RPMs, and the fan features a rifled sleeve bearing for quiet operation and long life. The fan is rated for 0.22A at 12 VDC.

The front panel incorporates seven modular connectors for the power cables, all nicely keyed and labeled.

All of the modular cables are individually sleeved with black nylon mesh covering. Note the cables are made intentionally short for use in small form factor enclosures.

Under the Hood

Here are a few pictures showing the layout and components inside Corsair SF600 power supply.  Corsair is using Great Wall as their OEM partner for the SF Platinum Series. The overall layout and build quality appear to be excellent.

All of the capacitors used inside the PSU a nice mix of Japanese made electrolytic and solid polymer caps. For example, the SF600 primary bulk capacitor is made by Nippon Chemi-con and rated for 470uF, 420V, and 105°C.
